Hardware building blocks

Based on a fundamental analysis of the hardware requirements in robotics research as well as industry the BRICS partners will develop Robotics RTD Platforms, components and interfaces to:

BlueBotics platform

KUKA youBot

IPA Care-O-Bot3

BRSU Jonny

Therefore hardware from the consortium partners and other suppliers will be included. The project internal hardware development focuses on harmonisation towards BRICS overall targets:

IPA Rob(at)Work2

KUKA omniRob


During the project runtime a number of research camps will be organised to give external collaborators access to the Robotics RTD Platforms, components and interfaces. The following scientific and technical key issues will be addressed in this activity:
